Actually my carrot sowings have all gone well this year, so I probably do not need any more of those. Ditto I have two lots of leeks in modules waiting to go out in June, so I doubt I need more of those (and I only have one mesh so I am limited to one bed for leeks).
I got some Sturon sets and planted today, so am hoping for the best. If they also fail, I may have to miss alliums for a year or so…..
On a more positive front, applying biodynamic horn manure to pear trees appears to have significant healing powers where pear midge is concerned. This year, after 3 years of bad infestation, applying in late February appears to have helped young fruitlets resist infection. So I wonder whether treating young alliums with horn manure might also be beneficial? Too late for this year, but I may try it on the leeks and next year on onions…..
